You have to wonder what’s in that tea- the tea that they’re sipping on. One thing is for sure, it increases testosterone as was seen in those angry public displays throughout the country of late. Still, I’m wondering if it also has an hallucinogenic effect on the drinker.
A recent comment on this blog helped me come up with this hallucinogenic analysis. The comment was about the seeming impotency of Obama to do something about the oil gushing into the Gulf. Yet the author of this comment has often called for less ‘government’ in the lives of the citizens. There was another comment about Obama’s failure to create jobs, yet the author criticized counting census workers as part of the workforce.
By the way, how does the President of the United States create jobs? The only ‘jobs’ that a president is authorized to ‘create’ are military ones during a war and then only with the approval of funding from Congress.
Tea Partiers railed against the so-called Stimulus Bill as a budget-buster. That bill has kept millions of workers on the payroll, albeit the Federal payroll. Additionally, the Tea Party wing of the GOP wants the unemployed workers of America to begin begging for food on the streets because those unemployment benefits will add to the Federal debt.
Thus, the upshot is of this thinking is clearly that of someone sipping on peyote juice.
Then there are the two wars begun by GW Bush and funded by Congress for the past 8 to 10 years. What does the Tea Party contingent have to say about these enormous budget-busters? Or does the flapping American Flag get in the way?
I’ve seen scant Tea Party Rally signs calling for ending these two wars, but plenty for denying health coverage for the citizens back home. Delusional.
